Healthy Recreation Programs

For the development of body, mind, and spirit.

Serving the Greater Hornell Community since 1883

With first-rate Fitness, Aquatics, Music & Arts, and Child Care Programs for community members of all ages

The YMCA (Young Men's Christian Association) is a charitable Non-Profit organization based on Christian Principles. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. That’s why at the Y, strengthening community is our cause.
